Why is there so much sin in the world today?
“…through on man’s disobedience the many were made sinners….”
— Genesis 2:16-17
After the temptation of Satan, man fell from his original innocence.
This explains why children, as soon as they are able to make decisions about right and wrong, begin to break God’s laws. When people do what comes naturally, they sin. It is also why we now live in an environment so full of temptation.
